Many parents are facing the challenge of juggling working from home, childcare, and homeschooling their children, all at the same time! That is exhausting! Nobody was prepared for that kind of workload, and we think you parents are doing an INCREDIBLE job. You are making the most of the situation and your kids are benefiting from your time and attention during this stressful time. We know it’s a lot to handle, so we’re providing our 3 Easy Tips For Teaching At Home!
- Make mini lessons.
- Your kids don’t need to sit in a classroom all day. Do a short lesson, an activity, and take a break. Go outside for a bit or take a walk. Breaking up the school work will help your kids to focus better on the lesson, and give you a break from teaching.
- Take advantage of our online tutoring!
- We know most of your aren’t teachers, but we are! If math isn’t your strong suit, let us take over that subject and teach your child for you! Or writing, or reading or science! You can use the time to get some work done, prep dinner, or have a few minutes to yourself. We are happy to help in any way we can!
- Be flexible!
- Don’t stress yourself out over getting every subject covered every single day. You have enough on your plate. Make a goal to get 1 or 2 lessons in a day, and if you do more, that’s amazing! If you skip science for a day or two, it’s okay. Give yourself some grace, and take it in stride. Maybe focus on the subject you missed yesterday, and skip the one that you did a great job on! This is uncharted territory for EVERYONE, so be flexible with your home-schooling. You’re doing great, Mom & Dad!
